ADVANCED PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITIES

time

Attention Advanced Placement LVN Applicants:

7/16/14
Due to the long wait for openings into the Cabrillo Nursing Program in Level 2 (second semester), we are not accepting LVN applications at this time. If you have any questions, please email nursing@cabrillo.edu

LVNs currently on the Advanced Placement Wait List will continue to hold their position on the wait list and will be notified by email each fall and spring semester regarding space availability for the semester.

Attention Advanced Placement Transfer Applicants:

7/16/14

Due to the long wait for openings into the Cabrillo Nursing Program in Level 2 (second semester), we are not accepting transfer applications at this time for Level 2. Transfer students seeking Level 3 (3rd semester) or Level 4 (4th semester) entry, prior to requesting an application, are required to contact the Nursing Department to schedule a meeting with the Director of Nursing. The meeting will focus on the student's course sequence and clinical background to determine possible transfer into Level 3 or Level 4. All potential applicants will be asked to bring unofficial transcripts. If it is determined the student may be eligible for a position in either Level 3 or Level 4, then a complete application packet will be required. Application information will be available after the meeting with the director.  If you have any questions or would like to schedule a meeting, please email nursing@cabrillo.edu

Transfer applicants must also meet the following criteria:

  • Transfer applicants must demonstrate that they have been separated from their previous ADN program for no more than two years in order to be eligible for transfer to our program.
  • Transfer applicants must demonstrate that they separated from their previous Nursing program in good academic standing in order to be eligible for transfer as an advanced placement student.
  • Transfer applicants must demonstrate completion of at least one semester of medical-surgical fundamentals and obstetrics in order to be eligible to transfer into our program as an advanced placement student.

  • Currently students transferring from an accredited ADN program may apply to the Cabrillo College Associate Degree Nursing Program ONLY in the case of possible transfer into Level 3 or Level 4, as per requirements noted in the above information.

Available Positions:


Once accepted, students will be placed in a pool of qualified applicants. Placement in a class is based on space availability, application post mark date, and review of transcripts and syllabi of completed course work for transfer applicants.


Positions are made available to Advanced Placement applicants on a space available basis only.  Spaces are made available in our program when current students withdraw from the program. Consequently it is difficult to predict when or how many positions will be available to Advanced Placement applicants for any given semester.

Advanced Placement LVN and Transfer Students will be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN) upon successful completion of our program.
